Over the Moon with These Divine Mooncakes!


Traditional Baked Millennium Mooncakes

Mid-Autumn Festival is the time for moon gazing and to relish delectable mooncakes. Here’s some of my recommendations if you are planning to get mooncakes to surprise your family, business associates and loved ones.

Traditional Baked Millennium Mooncakes

These timeless classics are delicately handcrafted and baked to glorious golden brown. The White Lotus Paste with Single Yolk and Macadamia nuts is my all-time favourite. I think the combination of the salted egg yolk and macadamia nuts is heavenly, giving it a well-balanced sweetness. The double yolk version is a little too heavy for me. Those who are on a diet can opt for the plain White Lotus Paste which is low in sugar and calories. Another flavour I enjoy is the Red Bean Paste with Melon seeds. Although this is slightly on the sweeter side, it has a refreshing flavour. The Seeds of Harmony is a little too nutty for me. For those who can’t decide, you can go for the Hua Ting's Traditional Treasures Gift Box which has a mix of different flavours. 

From $73 per box of four

Gu Ma Jia, a Chinese restaurant located at Tai Thong Crescent, Sennett Estate debuts with a series of baked mooncakes namely the White Lotus Paste with Single Yolk, White Lotus Paste with Double Yolk, White Lotus Paste with Melon Seeds and the Five Nut Mooncakes. What makes Gu Ma Jia’s mooncakes special is that it is made with fresh ingredients and is crafted with passion. Although the packaging is not as striking as other Chinese restaurants, Gu Ma Jia’s winning formula is the wholesome and genuine taste. The White Lotus Paste with Single Yolk and the White Lotus Paste with Melon seeds are the more popular flavours. The Five Nut flavour is a hit with those who are health-conscious and like a crunchy texture. Nuts are generally good for the heart and contain a considerable amount of fibre, unsaturated fats and omega 3 fatty acids.

Prima Deli Snowskin Mooncakes

Prima Deli has introduced a Royal Gift Set consisting of nine different flavours this year. I like the Mini Chocolate Mint which is light and the mint neutralises the sweetness of the chocolate. The Mini Sakura Matcha is also another flavour which deserves a mention. It is sweet but not overpowering therefore you can indulge without worrying. If you like fruity flavours, the Mini Mango Lemongrass and Mini Soursop with Guava are noteworthy metions. Tangy and refreshing, these flavours are perfect for our humid weather, however my taste buds seem to veer towards the Mini Mango Lemongrass which has a very refreshing tropical flavour. Durian aficionados will definitely be delighted with the Mini D24 Durian. Although, I am not really a fan of durians, I must say that the Mini D24 Durian is quite delightful. It tastes really great when it is cold and just out of the refrigerator. Other flavours that won my heart include the Mini Cookies and Cream and Mini Salted Caramel Toffee. The more exotic flavours are the Mini Cranberry Cheese and the Mini Thai Milk Tea with black pearl. Cranberry and cheese is quite an unusual combination, however, it works quite well together as the taste of the cheese is quite light. The colour of the Thai milk tea with black pearl put me off initially due to its charcoal black colour, however, when I sunk my teeth into it, the pleasant aroma and taste of the milk tea makes my taste buds tingle with delight.

$49.80 per box
